An Eve’s Blessings

Be blessed I say to everyone

Be blessed by the return and rise of the sun

Wherever you’re at north south east or west

For many this time of the year is the best


Each has a view of what happens these days

Bringing warmth and light in their own ways

So I deliver ancient blessings that this time brings

From every direction these things


Be blessed the north with thy coldest days

Both near and far reflect your ways

Plump belly reindeer and fire glow

Helped us make it through days of old in the snow


The land of the east and the morning sun

Has been many days so the place holds the name

Where the sun does rise

Here is where new life comes from, the sky


The south from whence cometh such soul and fire

Where the sun neither wavers falters or tires

Steady its heat comes like the beat of the drums

That speak of the place friends and family do come


In the west the sun sets as the past goes on its way

Always leaving the promise of a new risen day

So wherever you are look inside and remember

All over the world solstice comes in June and December


Truly all good things come from above

All places are the same located in love

Listen with your heart can you hear the singing

It’s the joy that friends and family are bringing


Oh! And one last thing before I go

The debt and greed of the season

That shit is from below


Happy Festivus
